Be open about what you want.
Be open about what you want. Be sure you advise them that you cannot be influenced by low salary expectations, and that you want what you earned in the industry. Know the going rate and do not ask for the sky. Be reasonable. Yes the job interview is the time to get this settled. Otherwise, you will not e satisfied when the offer comes through and you have wasted your - and their - time.
Project manager construction
During the interview you may find the companies type of construction is not an exact fit to your backround. I have found that most interviewers will not give the latitude to see your experence could overcome this lack of experence in their company's type of work. You will need to be a very good salesmen to sell them on this area. Make sure to ask the question about this precivied train of though and what the companys stance on this subject is, remember that you also need to ask questions that are important to you.

Late X-Mas Bonus

When arriving the first day, and throughout career, do not be afraid to make a judgement call. Take appropriate action when the group cannot, and or will not voice an opinon, in fear of failure and ridicule, to make on the spot choices. Be willing to accept ramifications of an individual choice made on the job. Do not make judgement calls based on fear. Make decisions to keep the project moving, even if your call fails all together, or in pieces. I would much rather have an employee make a call to maintain momentum, right or wrong. Finally, always have a pen or pencil, something to write on, and a tape measure.
